I've been on hiatus!

I've totally been lazy about blogging this week!  I went back to the doctor on Tuesday and she basically had no answers for me.  All my bloodwork is good except for a B12 deficiency.  As you can tell I absolutely am not vegan and I eat a lot of meat, eggs, and dairy so there is no reason my B12 should be low.  The doctor admitted she was clueless so due to internet research and help from my cousin who is a nurse, I've requested that she test me for celiacs/gluten intolerance.  It seems the blood test isn't very accurate and EGD is standard but I had an EGD several months back and while they noted inflammation of my small intestine they didn't biopsy it!  Doctors are so frustrating.  In light of the inflammation and my symptoms I feel that regardless of the blood results I'll be doing a trial run of a gluten free diet to see what happens.  Couldn't hurt.  Might help.  So this week I've had a few gluten filled favorites.

Cinnamon raisin English muffins with peanut butter for breakfast. Why the greenish tint I have no idea.

Hibachi steak and noodles from Fujiyamas.  Saved some for lunch! 

Cracker Barrel biscuits with blackberry preserves.

Tomorrow I'll probably have a scone from my favorite bakery.  Then I start the trial diet and if goes well it may be my permanent diet.
